Message from The President
Message from the 2019 Durga Puja Committee ChairpersonDated: August 4, 2019
Dear Bichitra members,
It is my honor and privilege to address you as the Chairperson of this year’s Durga Puja committee. This is a very special year for Bichitra, as this year marks the 40th celebration of Shree Shree Sharadiya Durga Puja. Let’s come and celebrate together what it means to be Bengali.
I thought I should connect with you at this time as the Puja committee is starting to embark on its journey. We are less than 60 days away from the Puja celebrations.
It is our hope that the Puja days could be filled with engaging and inspiring activities to celebrate our traditions and culture. Our commitment is to make this year’s Puja a grand celebration! To make it a memorable one, we need your active participation and we trust that you will get involved in ways that are meaningful to uphold the spirit of the community and the Pujo celebration.
Improving your overall satisfaction is our priority. We will review the lessons learned from the previous years’ Puja and genuinely attempt to improve our performance and conduct the Puja peacefully. The task that is given to us is not simple. Mistakes may happen as we will go through a long and winding road. I recognize that personalities, characters and management styles may differ. Please feel free to criticize and make suggestions so that we could address the problems as soon as they are generated.
Thank you for placing your trust and confidence in our abilities to make this year’s Puja an enjoyable and memorable one for all Bichitra members, guests and visitors.
Let’s get ready to enjoy the forthcoming Puja days for which we are waiting from the last year’s Maha Dashami day when we all chanted “Asche bachar, abaar habe”! The wait is almost over!!!
In the coming days, you will receive the Puja invitation containing the details of the Puja and other announcements. A call for submitting literary articles and arts had already been circulated for inclusion in our Agomoni magazine. Please conform to the deadline so that we can get the magazine published in a timely manner.
Feel free to connect with me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by WhatsApp/Text at 204-269-3075 if you have any questions / concerns, or want to share any ideas or suggestions regarding the Puja.
Looking forward to experiencing a remarkable Durga Puja this year with your presence and support!
Chairperson, Bichitra 2019 Durga Puja Committee
